Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings all,

When my father passed in 2010 I inherited the family genealogical quest (or should I say...Bit by the Genealogy Bug). He left me several boxes which included items such as letters, marriage and death certificates, wills and even photos going as far back as the Civil War. With direct family at both Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill Cemeteries in Philadelphia, I like to visit them as often as I can. So I will attempt to fulfill Photo Requests from there when I'm up in that area.

I truly enjoy helping others locate their family & friends and will continue to do everything I can to help document their requests. I also sincerely appreciate those who have been helping me through this website!

Admittedly you will see that I have uploaded a lot more Photos than I have Memorials. I tend to go a bit overboard, trying to provide memorials with not only a photo of the headstone but also of the area & surrounding (2-3 shots/site). I feel it provides prospective for viewers of the memorial and also if anyone goes looking for the actual plot, they will hopefully have an easier time locating it by the area shots I provide.

I look forward to continuing the journey.

Russ Dodge is a docent at this cemetery. He reports that the people transferred on this date were transferred from the local morgue or a similar office, because they were all unclaimed remains. That's why they have death dates added to the Laurel Hill records. Thus, we may be able to find death certificates on most or all of them.

RE: Henry, James and Jimmy
The thing is, I'm not sure that all 3 of these boys are not brothers. Being together like that makes me think they are. Just not sure of why they would have a James and a Jimmy. I know one had died when the other was born. Trying to find some of the family that might know for sure. Thanks again for your help.

Second mystery solved.
Thanks again. Now you have solved why they did not show up in the search when I put them on in 2010 with data I received.
Best to you and all yours, Bud

RE: Baughcom
No, that does it for me. I was settling a dispute on where they were buried. You solved it for sure.
Thanks again, Bud
